Picture Wednesday – The Year of the Bus


2014 is the year of the bus in UK, with a number of anniversaries taking place.

  • It is 100 years since the battle bus, the first mass-produced motor bus which transported soldiers to the front line during World War I.
  • The Routemaster was created 60 years ago.
  • The RT-Type bus was launched 75 years ago.

So, there are a number of street sculptures around London to commemorate this year. Just another way to celebrate, although cheaper fares would have been a much better option I think.

Guess where I took the picture below?

  1. The year of the bus? Well, that is a new one. I know of a blogger who does a series called, “As I sat on the bus”. I will have to tell him about this.
